Music and the Invasion of Technology

by WGBH

Published 2006
Topics music


Christine Southworth, composer, Brown University & MIT; Evan Ziporyn, professor, music, MIT

Composers Evan Ziporyn (Bang On A Can and Gamelan Galak Tika) and Christine Southworth (the robot opera Zap!) perform new works for robots and humans, on western and traditional Balinese instruments. Afterwards, they discuss how technology influences the musical experience for composers, performers and listeners.

Art and science have continually flirted over the centuries. Both investigate. Both involve theories and transforming information into something else. This lecture is a part of a Museum of Science series "When Science Meets Art", which examines the mysterious symbiosis of science with art through the ingenuity of those shattering the boundaries between the two fields.
